Unfortunately I didn't get to read as much as I would have liked. Maybe if I spent less time on the computer reading and posting on KindleBoards and Facebook, I would get further along! All other reading was done only on my Kindle.

1. Leslie's FAQ
2. Morning and Evening Daily Readings
3. My bible
4. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
5. The Color of Magic by Terry Prachett
6. More samples than you can shake a stick at by a whole bunch of authors I never read!

Starting with November 14th when I received my Kindle, I've read:

1. Ring of Hell by Matthew Randazzo V (more like Formatting of Hell)
2. The Great Movies by Roger Ebert (I haven't read everything yet, but it's not really the kind of book made for reading in order)
3. The Amazon Kindle FAQ by Leslie H. Nicoll, Joshua Tallent, and DeLancey Nicoll (great stuff)
4. Hearing Aid by David Langford (see my review here)
5. Marley and Me by John Grogan (fantastic)
6. Suite 606 by J.D. Robb, Mary Blayney, Ruth Ryan Langan, and Mary Kay McComas (loved it)
7. Beware by Richard Laymon (pretty decent, but there are a couple of formatting glitches)
8. Salvation in Death by J.D. Robb (currently reading)
9. The first chapter of Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes (it's great, but I got sidetracked by Marley & Me after being sucked in by a sample)
10. Tons of samples and several issues of the online newsletters I subscribe to

As you can see from my sig, I have a lot left to catch up on, not to mention all of the free classics and indy author stories not mentioned in my sig.

I may not read as much as some of you, but I am reading much more than I was. When I lived in NYC, I did a lot of
reading on the subways and also did not have a laptop to distract me, I use to read about a book a week. Before my Kindle,
I would be lucky to finish a book evey 2 or 3 weeks. Maybe a little more lately cause I started keeping track of what I read through my
facebook page which gave me some extra incentive to finish more quickly.

Since getting my K at the end of October, I have read 4 books, (2 quite long)

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
Moral Disorder
Lady Audley's Secret
and I finished this little gem last night by Laura Lippman
What the Dead Know
(which is now only $4! I paid $7 something last week)
